There are a million reasons to visit Italy. It has a beautiful culture, heritage, monuments, landscapes and most importantly the food!

Italy has some of the most beautiful cities including Venice, Rome and Naples. Italian art and music are valuable and narrate many events of renaissance history.

However, to be one with the locals and get around Italy, it is best to know Italian. Here, we give you some great tips to learn Italian quickly.

1. Classes
One way to learn Italian quickly is to take Italian classes. Before you plan your amazing getaway, you can plan for a few weeks or months of classes. This is enough to get a hang of basic phrases. Many apps like DuoLingo are available and can help you learn the language.

Many Italian classes in Los Angeles offer various packages. You can choose a package you find comfortable or go for online videos. 

Make use of the resources you have to learn the language.

2. Music
One of the most effective ways to learn a language is to listen to music in that language. Rhythm can help you retain a lot of information. Moreover, listening to music and singing along is a fun way to learn Italian.

Listening to Italian music will help you improve your pronunciation and also help you learn new words. 

Listen to Canzoni, an Italian ballad and sing along once you get the hang of it. Music on Youtube and Spotify is free and these resources make it super easy to access Italian music. 

3. Italian newspapers
Figure out an Italian newspaper and subscribe to it. This way you get to read news, gossip, stories and the happenings in Italy every day, in Italian!

Since the language in journals is one of the hardest forms to read and understand, reading Italian newspapers would be a great test. You also get to learn about all the beautiful places in Italy and the happenings through the news.

You would be exposed to a variety of difficult words and at the same time, you would get a chance to understand their usage.

4. Italian food labels
Italian food is so famous that it is found in all supermarkets. When you buy Italian foods like oregano, spaghetti, or olive oil, choose products with an Italian label. Since you already know the meaning of the words on the label, all you need to do is get your pronunciation right and remember the words.

If the label has cooking instructions, read them as well and you might pick up some new words. Make sure to write down all new words and their meaning. Every time you use the ingredient, try to remember all the Italian words and meanings on the label.

5. Literature
Reading stories is an engaging and effective way to learn a language. Grab some Italian short-story books or search for them on the internet. Read one story every day, and try to remember the meanings of new words you find. 

Short stories can be targeted at various levels- beginner, intermediate and difficult. As you move through these levels you get a chance to self-evaluate your Italian knowledge. 

6. Movies and series
Are you planning a lazy Saturday movie night or looking for a new series? Look for one in Italian. 

Most countries have Italian channels on their television broadcast for the Italian communities living there. Subscribe to these channels and watch them during your free time. 

You don’t have to understand everything, but watching the movie/show will visually engage you and you’ll somewhat understand what’s happening. Otherwise, you can always write down what you hear and look up the meaning later.

7. Italian friends
If you know someone originally from Italy, who has settled in your country, chances are they know Italian or someone in their family knows fluent Italian. 

Make friends with them and ask them to teach you the language. You can even go over to their house and have a friendly conversation. 

This is a great way to learn to speak the language, the way the natives do.

Conclusion
Keep these easy tips in mind to learn Italian fast. The best part of these tips is you can apply them in your daily routine. 

We hope you learn Italian quickly and when you visit Italy you’ll not be treated as a tourist!
